Pencil dust is beginning to pile up with the sketch work for picture book Magnificent Matt....

You may find that what really makes Matt magnificent is not his cape, goggles or his lightening speed ......  

Winter Wonderland sketches - preschool book that celebrates the wonder of winter for young and old....

Sketches from "Winter Wonderland"  written by Debbie Estrem.
This is the third book in a nostalgic series for parents and 
grandparents to share with little ones, celebrating 
the best memories of every season. 

The first two books in the series are now available!

"Summertime Book for Preschoolers that Children of the Seventies will enjoy...

If you are a child of the 70's Summertime may have seemed much simpler, slower,
like molasses running up hill.
Kids made their own fun, used their imaginations to create forts and climb trees and play outdoor games. There were no cell phones, ipads or you tube....just lots of time spent with family and friends, and creating  new adventures!

Debbie Estrem and I
are working on a picture book
 for preschoolers that transports them back to the way kids spent their summers in the 70's. We hope it will spark some imaginative ideas for the wee folks and that adults will enjoy the little stroll in time.

"It's Summertime" is the first of a four book series from Debbie Estrem, who has also authored "Have You Ever Seen a Firefly?" and "Sights at the Zoo."
